One important mission for EBCOG is publish documents relating to Standards of Care. These cover a number of key areas related to OB & Gyn and Women’s Health. We aim to to improve the health of women and unborn and newborn babies by promoting the highest possible standards of care.

As part of our focus on quality assurance and patient safety, EBCOG has produced two sets of Standards of Care for Women’s Health; one for Obstetric and Neonatal Services and one for Gynaecology Services. These documents were officially launched in the European Parliament in November 2014.
